HOLY S***! I had been thinking about how great Rift would be with 4k resolution, but thought it was just a pipe dream. I thought it would make it cost way too much.

Maybe it'll be a separate model, at a higher price. But, at least it'll be an option, if you can afford it.

This would be so immersive that it would be like the scene in he movie Inception where those guys live in their dreams and the real world is hardly visited, lol.

Hook up a medical drip and you're good to go.

would 4k on the occulus rift require more beefy hardware or less? Because the displays are smaller since they are in such close proximity to your eyes, then wouldn't have to fill an entire screen with the display
Volkama  +   266d ago
4k is defined by the number of pixels, so it'll be as demanding as stereoscopic 4k I suppose.

Does seem a bit crazy for the screen size.

The size of the display doesn't matter. Think of it this way: a 24" monitor requires the same graphical power as a 60" monitor.

Awesome!

Look at how many games coming out for the rift.

I've had tons of fun just messing around with all th tests and tech demos. There are a few retail games that already support it too like Hawken, Lunar flight, War Thunder and Half Life 2.

I was thinking of buying it (I know its only a dev kit and not retail) but I am afraid I would get raped with the Irish customs fees.

@Perjoss
That's wonderful! I can't wait to try out the rift.
EVE Valkyrie looks amazing.

The support the rift has been getting is the best part. They've got it all...horror,racing sim,space combat, etc.

BTW, did you get the chance try out the roller coasters demo on the rift?

Yes I did try the roller coaster demo, really nice sense of vertigo, you actually feel a little uncomfortable when you do that first drop. There's is also a fantastic helicopter demo where you fly around an island and close to an battleship type boat.

There's a crazy sense of fear if you fly too close to the sea. And just to put things into perspective the graphics for the helicopter demo are terrible but it still manages to totally capture the feeling of flying. I can only imagine what it would be like once we start seeing high budget titles that are developed from the ground up with Rift support in mind.

Thats cool, I hope it will make its way to a consoles.. I would love it for Wii U & PS4
Detoxx  +   266d ago
Is it going to release, or is it planned to release on PS4? Would buy this instantly!
steve30x  +   266d ago
They dont have any immediate plans on having Rift working on Consoles yet.
Volkama  +   266d ago
Sony are strongly rumoured to be doing their own VR set though.
steve30x  +   265d ago
They already have ione in development and they are taking preorders for $1200
